Fun Facts

​The best advice Dr. Dickinson has ever received is, "Do what you love." Si​ngle malt scotches and bingeing​ on Netflix are his two guilty pleasures. Dr. Dickinson has six grandchildren, "all of whom are wonderful (and exhausting)."
​My philosophy of care is to give my patients all the information they need to make an informed choice. I make sure their questions are answered and they feel comfortable with what I am recommending. I engage them in the decision making process and ensure they understand the changes and medications I will be adding to their daily regimen. I motivate them to do the simple things that keep them healthy; keeping their weight reasonable, stopping smoking, reducing alcohol intake where needed and maintaining their exercise regimens. Ultimately, I promote moderation in their habits such that they can expect a long and healthy life.
